of san francisco, i know that the chief and i and supervisor cohen and dr. campbell and the whole public health staff have always had dialogue and been concerned especially when there is an uptick in june of this year on violent crime and homicides in san francisco. and, so, we've been working together on creating a program which i announced some months ago, the ipo program, the ability to work on things that would interrupt and intervene earlier in the behavior patterns of people that would be both victims and perpetrators of violent crime in our city. to support the police department and law enforcement system of doing more predictive policing using both data and technology to help us do that. and then, of course, i think the most important part is to organize our communities and work with community-based organizations, families, religious groups, and everybody that's on the ground to find more ways to intervene in violent behavior out there and utilize resources such as education systems, our community jobs programs, others that might allow people to go in different direction.

information with his boss, the billionaire hedge fund manager steve cohen of sac capital. martoma's big tip allegedly taking place during a 20-minute phone call to cohen the day before the news of the drug failing a key trial became public. sac sold its position before that public announcement netting the firm a profit and avoiding losses totaling $276 million. sac declined comment on today's arraignment and they claim they acted appropriately and are cooperating with the government. martoma is the fifth sac employee to be charged with securities fraud while working at the hedge fund. one other has been named as a co-conspirator. martoma also seemed critical to securing what many believe is the government's ultimate catch, mr. cohen. because of the phone call that he made to mr. cohen in july of 2008. unlike three other former sac employees though, he has refused to cooperate or strike a deal maintaining all the while that he is innocent. now today's arraignment should be quick. basically mr. martoma will enter his plea and then possibly the judge will likely set a schedule for discovery or
